Mission Registers on CD ROM

The Library holds a collection of CDs from various sources, which may be viewed at the library.

Catholic Family History Society publications

1. Registers of the Sardinian Embassy Chapel, London 1772-1841

Contains transcriptions with indexes of 12 baptismal registers from the Sardinian Chapel in Lincoln's Inn Fields from 1772-1841.

The registers cover:

2. Miscellaneous London District Transcriptions Volume 1

Contains scans of 27 indexed transcriptions of Catholic parish registers from churches, chapels and missions in the county of Middlesex.

The registers cover:

2a. Miscellaneous London Transcripts Vol. 2

This CD complements Volume 1 with scans of a further 23 indexed transcriptions of Catholic parish registers from churches, chapels and missions in the ecclesiastical division known as the London District until 1850. The registers on this CD cover:

3. St Patrick's Livesey Street Baptism Register 1832-1860

Contains scanned copies of the original baptism register for the period 2 Mar 1832 to 30 Dec 1860.

4. St. Patrick's, Livesey Street Burial Register

The plot on which St Patrick's chapel was established in 1832 was big enough to include a sizeable graveyard. It soon became the focal point for the burial of Catholics over much of North Manchester, even as far afield as Openshaw.

The period covered in this Index from May 1832 to June 1858, when burials ceased. The entries total 27,094. As well as the name of the deceased and the date of burial, the cause of death (usually in colloquial, not medical language) and address are given in many entries. A considerable number of the deceased do not appear in GRO Death Indexes, even as late as 1857.

5. St. Mary's, Mulberry Street, Manchester, Baptism Register 1820-1831

Baptismal Registers began in 1794. This CD ROM contains scanned images of the Second Register and an index, together with a short history of the parish and a catalogue extract giving references for the parish registers which are kept at Lancashire Record Office.

6. Lancashire Catholic Wills 1492-1894

Over 4000 wills are included and the Index shows the names of nearly 50,000 testators, beneficiaries, family members and witnesses. In addition, wherever possible, the reputed Roman Catholic Status of the testators and others has been confirmed by reference to other sources such as parish registers and Returns of Papists, which are also noted in the Index.

7. St. Anne's, Junction Street, Ancoats, Manchester 1848-1874

Contains both a transcript and scanned copies of the original baptism register from 18 June 1848 to 4 January 1875. Register entries were in the form birth date, baptism date, child's full name, father's Christian name, mother's full maiden name, 1st godparent's full name, 2nd godparent's full name. All the names are included in the Indexed. After Jan 1856m the names were mostly entered in Latin; they appear in the index translated into their English equivalents. The original registers are deposited at the Lancashire Record Office.

(More of these will be added as they become available)

The Parish Register Transcription Society publications

Transcript of Fr. Anstruther's Catholic Marriages and Baptism Index

This covers over 30,000 Marriages chiefly for London and Essex for the mid 18th Century to the 1870's; some entries up to 1840.

Transcribed from the original documents held by the IHGS Canterbury, by the Parish Register Transcription Society.

Manchester and Lancashire Family History Society publications

The account book of Casey's Charity - an indexed transcript 1794-1847 with an index of 13,000 names.

Casey's Charity was established by the will of John Casey, an Irish linen merchant who lived for many years in Manchester but retired to Chester where he died on 13 September 1792. He left a sum of £540 (to which a further £300 was added in 1795 on the death of his son), the interest from which was to be applied to the relief of the poor Catholics of Manchester.

The account book, which covers 1794 to 1847, lists the recipients of payments from the fund and the sums given. In a few cases, a street address is given but mostly the information is limited to names only. Many of these names, as might be expected, appear to refer to Irish men and women. A few Italian surnames also appear.
